Britain's Prime Minister's Office Uses False Names in Correspondence with the Public

Downing Street has told the BBC it uses false names on letters to MPs and members of the public.

The admission came after Labour MP Sir Gerald Kaufman said he got a letter from No 10 signed by a "Mrs E Adams".

But when he called Downing Street he was told she did not exist as the name was "computer-generated", which meant the signature was false.

A No 10 spokesman said real names had not been used on correspondence since 2005 for security reasons.'
